This dish has summer written all over it. Fresh tomatoes and sweet basil straight from the garden give life to a bright summer side dish- Tomato and Orzo Salad.

Prepare the orzo first. Orzo is a rice like pasta noodle that gives a nice base to this salad. Bring water to a boil, add salt, then about a half cup of orzo. Cook according to package directions.

Drain the orzo and pour pasta in a serving dish. Meanwhile, slice about a cup of cherry tomatoes in half. Dice up a half cup of block feta cheese or pre crumbled feta. Add in the tomatoes and feta on top of the orzo.

Tear up a handful of sweat basil leaves and add them to the salad. Then pour a half cup or so of very good extra virgin olive oil over everything. Add a generous amount of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss before serving and enjoy!
